Todos Medical Receives Two Notices of Allowance from USPTO for AI-Based TBIA Pan-Cancer Blood Diagnostics Platform
New York, NY, and Tel Aviv, ISRAEL, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Todos Medical, Ltd. (OTCQB: TOMDF), a comprehensive medical diagnostics and related solutions company, today announced that it has received two Notices of Allowance from the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for patent applications covering the Company’s Total Biochemical Infrared Analysis (TBIA) Fourier Transformed Infrared (FTIR) pan-cancer blood diagnostics platform. The Notices of Allowance are for patent applications entitled 1) “Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy System” and 2) “Infrared Analysis of Benign Tumors.” The Company has already received CE marks for its TBIA blood diagnostic test in breast cancer and colon cancer.
The key allowed claim for Infrared (IR) Spectroscopy System patent application was surrounding the system of collecting blood, obtaining FTIR spectrum from peripheral blood lymphocytes, and an output unit, configured to generate an output indicative of the presence of a solid tumor. The claim allowed for the patent application Analysis of Benign Tumors was related to the necessary conditions to capture consistent data to yield actionable results.
“The allowance of these two seminal pieces of intellectual property underlying the Company’s TBIA FTIR pan-cancer diagnosis platform, which we believe will ultimately outcompete the liquid biopsy platform for routine testing of asymptomatic and early-stage cancer patients, including tests such as Illumina’s Galleri®,” said Gerald Commissiong, President & CEO of Todos Medical. “As we prepare to launch our Videssa breast cancer test in 2023, it will be very important to capture TBIA FTIR data from each patient tested with Videssa so we can continue to build the TBIA FTIR algorithm in order to gather sufficient data to submit to FDA. This platform will allow us to test for multiple cancers from the same blood sample because of the power of spectroscopy, as compared with more traditional antibody-based assays that make multiplexing challenging. We are very excited to be able to allow this technology to mature appropriately while we launch Videssa in the market.”
The global cancer diagnostics market size is expected to be increase to approximately USD $258 billion by 2030 from USD $124 billion in 2021, according to Precedence Research. The global cancer diagnostics market is expected to experience growth at a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
About Todos Medical Ltd.
Todos is also developing blood tests for the early detection of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease. The Lymphocyte Proliferation Test (LymPro Test™) is a diagnostic blood test that determines the ability of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) and monocytes to withstand an exogenous mitogenic stimulation that induces them to enter the cell cycle. It is believed that certain diseases, most notably Alzheimer's disease, are the result of compromised cellular machinery that leads to aberrant cell cycle re-entry by neurons, which then leads to apoptosis. LymPro is unique in the use of peripheral blood lymphocytes as a surrogate for neuronal cell function, suggesting a common relationship between PBLs and neurons in the brain.
Todos formed the Israeli-based majority-owned joint venture 3CL Pharma, Ltd with NLC Pharma in March of 2022 to consolidate all of the intellectual property surrounding 3CL protease–based diagnostic testing and development of 3CL protease botanical and pharmaceutical inhibitors that target a fundamental reproductive mechanism of coronaviruses. 3CL Pharma, through Todos’ brand, has commercialized the 3CL protease inhibitor immune support dietary supplement Tollovid™ in the United States, is developing the dual mechanism 3CL protease inhibitor and anti-cytokine therapeutic drug candidate Tollovir™, while also developing the 3CL protease diagnostic TolloTest™.
